The mighty Maldives - we just can't stay away, and why should we? Have you seen how amazing it is? We are SO excited to be releasing our 2nd Maldives GTS group after the huge success of our past Maldives trip. If you watched with envy then this is your chance to do the same trip! Yet again we are partnering with our friend's Insider Divers (making it a mixed-gender trip) and calling the M/Y Blue Voyager our home for the week.

Our Boat

The first blue o two fleet vessel in the Maldives, M/Y blue Voyager was built specifically for divers and originally sailed in the Red Sea. She underwent a major refurbishment in 2015 before relocating to the Maldives with further updates in the summer of 2016 and 2017. M/Y blue Voyager welcomes up to 26 divers on board with spacious modern comfort, providing the best Maldivian diving experience!  M/Y blue Voyager is a 37-metre, steel hulled vessel that boasts three roomy double cabins and ten twin cabins. She features an indoor dining area, a bar and sky lounge, as well as a Jacuzzi - yes, guys, we have a Jacuzzi on board! Would you expect anything less?

Liveaboard route; Best of Central Atolls

Dive sites: North and South Male Atolls - Felidhu Atoll - Rasdhoo Atoll - Ari Atoll
The diving in the Maldives is absolutely sublime; shark and manta ray sightings are very very likely as well as myriads of reef fish, morays, critters and the king of them all - the whale shark!! Diving with Manta rays and reef sharks in various cleaning stations will be one of our aims for this trip, including night dive with Manta Rays and Nurse Sharks on two special night dives unable to mimic anywhere else in the world!  This itinerary is subject to change, depending on the weather.

What an incredible trip! The apartments were beautiful and the grounds were amazing! All of the instructors were great, Cara in particular was so helpful and supportive. The whale shark day was just epic and the cenote scuba diving was otherworldly. I had a blast and made lifelong connections with the other gals on the trip. 💜

This trip was life changing! Everyone at Amancay Freediving was absolutely fabulous. Combining freediving with a retreat was the best combination ever. Learning to relax in the beautiful waters of the Mayan cenotes, and the most beautiful accommodation, really made this retreat wonderful. The food was more than delicious, and the separate activities (whale sharks and cavern diving) were just the cherry on top. I can’t wait to return for the training retreat in the coming years!

This free diving trip changed my life for the better! Not only did I learn and do something I didn't know that I could learn and do, but did it with incredible instructors, in one of the most beautiful free diving settings in the world, with some of the most incredible women I've ever met. Freediving Cenotes, Whale sharks, scuba diving Cenotes, it doesn't get much better than that!! Thank you Sarah, Amancay Free-diving, GirlsthatFreedive, and GirlsthatScuba for organizing one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had!!! This is just the beginning of yet another water based obsession!!

This is the trip I never knew I NEEDED. It was so refreshing and well orchestrated. I find it hard to believe that I will travel again without checking what trips are available on the Girls that Scuba website first.
